6. General Information
We are afraid this is not allowed. The best we can suggest is that the person taking care of the meeting space will go out and have a quick bite during the time that session is on – and not go out during the conference meal breaks.
Only the booth contractor can provide the electricity. The range of amps is from 13 Amp 220v to 30 Amp 2220v only. Orders regarding water, phone and other utilities will have to be placed through the hotel.
Yes, bringing of own electric appliances is allowed. But please list down all equipment, materials, facilities and appliances that will be brought in the hotel, please fill-up the attached Ingress/Egress Form and email or fax it back to us at Fax No.: (632) 819-3752. Prepare two copies of this list. You will need to present this list to the guard at the employee’s entrance. The guard will check one by one the equipment that you are bringing in.
Yes, by all means do sell. Our experience is that the audience are more comfortable with networking given the short period of time. Feel free to offer your services to them, sell your premium items, etc. It’s your space – it’s up to you to use it well.
All are requested to wear smart casual or business attire for the duration of the conference.
